    Manila - Presidential hopefuls in the Philippines have met in a third televised debate ahead of next month's general elections. The gathering was the last chance for the candidates to get their policy ideas across to the voters in the country. Each of the five candidates has very vocal and impassioned supporters, and the winner will have to work hard to unite an increasingly divided public.
